Abstract

A waveguide structure capable of aggressive bends ( r 0 0 ) and long-range propagation ( 1.2 dB mm ) is described here. The structure uses a step-index slab to create the vertical confinement and a pair of metallic parallel plates on either side of the core for lateral confinement. The parallel plates are dimensioned to ensure that all modes that would cause radiation loss in a bend are cut off.
